MI paste

Dear Dr. Ellie:

Is it okay to use MI paste along with the cleansing system and the xylitol? Again thank you for your advice.

Dear EB

Using the system that I recommend raises the pH in the mouth at appropriate times and encourages minerals from saliva to go back into teeth. My system will work on its own perfectly – no problem.

The question is whether MI paste would improve the results: I doubt it. I think this is an expensive product that is basically derived from dried milk!

I doubt that MI paste will interfere with the system – but I do not know. I am not sure how MI paste raises the pH – my concern is that it may contain sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) – which I cannot recommend. Because there are patents on the product it is very difficult to tell exactly what it contains.

I would suggest using my system alone for about four weeks. In four weeks on my system your teeth should be starting to feel great – and look great. Then try adding MI paste and see if you notice any improvements/benefits. You should be able to “tell” if this makes things better/worse or no difference.

I would be interested to hear the outcome – and what you think at the conclusion of this experiment!

Best Wishes,

    I have one tube of Mint MI Paste left. I don't see sodium bicarbonate in the ingredients, but I bet you'd be concerned about the D-sorbitol and propylene glycol. Here is the ingredient list: Pure water, Glycerol, CPP-ACP, D-sorbitol, CMC-Na, Propylene glycol, Silicone dioxide, Titanium dioxide, Xylitol, Phosphoric acid, Flavoring,Zinc oxide, Sodium saccharin, Ethyl p-hydrobenzoate, Magnesium oxide, guar gum, Propyl p-hydroxybenzoate, Butyl p-hydrobenzoate.CPP-ACP is casein phosphopeptide – amorphous calcium phosphate. Their code word for dried milk.PubMed does list some research that makes this seem like an effective product, but I don't think anyone compared it to using milk.
